The Book this data comes from is: Civil Air Patrol Uniforms & Insigina

                                                         The Second Ten Years 1952-1961

                                 Compiled by: Col Louisa S. Morse, CAP

There are three books in this series. For Medal and Ribbon collectors, I think #2 is all that is needed. Material from one & three is all in #2.

Not counting covers, first page I name as 1a, next four pages have page #’s 1-4, after that I numbered pages in order ( 5 through186)
